Marker genes and supernumerary translocations on chromosome nine were utilized to locate genetic loci which influenced calcium, phosphorus, and manganese accumulation in the mid-leaves of selected inbred lines of maize (Zea mays L.). Data obtained from the backcross of tester inbreds to marker gene stocks indicate that genetic loci influencing Ca, P, and Mn accumulation exist on chromosome 9. Crosses of the tester inbreds with supernumerary translocatipu stocks were used to confirm these findings. Results of this study indicate the absence of a common genetic mechanism for the control of Ca, P, and Mn accumulation.
